Zidane was elected FIFA World Player of the Year a record-equalling three times (1998, 2000, 2003) and was named European Footballer of the Year in 1998. The world-record fee of € 66 million for his transfer to Real Madrid in 2001 remains unequalled. In 2004, he topped the UEFA Golden Jubilee Poll on Best European football player of the past 50 years, and was included in the FIFA 100, Pelé's list of the 125 greatest living footballers. At the 2006 FIFA World Cup, he played an inspiring role in his team's advancement to the final and was named Most Outstanding Player of the tournament, receiving the Golden Ball. Ronaldinho has been awarded the FIFA World Player of the Year award twice (2004, 2005), as well as the European Footballer of the Year award and the FIFPro World Player of the Year award (2005). He has downplayed suggestions that he is the best footballer in the world, telling FourFourTwo magazine, "I don't even feel I'm the best at Barça."

all said and done i know zidane was in a team that stopped ronaldinho's team's charmed run. True soccer is a team game,But the fact of the matter is ronaldinho h over the past year since the CL semifinals has been tied down byt tight 1+1 marking ......and he hasnt yet been able to break it. Zidane on the other hand has been there done that:) Even when not on song Zidane would send shivers down any teams spine ...not so much with ronaldinho. Anyways if you were suggesting the best footballr based on curresnt form it would be neither considering zidanes retired and ronaldinho has been a shadow of what he was the past year. Both might prolly get listed in the best midfielders list with Zidane a few echelons above ronaldinho as seen in the jOSE +10 teams:) But prolly they were not the best midfielders of all time:) SO Zidane is better than ronaldinho but definitely not the best in either of the above categories i suggested above:)

well my favourite player is ZIDANE, and although Ronaldinho got player of the year for 2005 but i think he has no competition to ZIDANE, ZIDANE is the best player alive today, and RONALDINHO we all saw him during the world cup and we all saw the performance of ZINDANE also ne after watching tht can decide who is the better player. ofcourse ZIDANE!!!
